General conference was different 100 years ago.
Instead of five sessions in two days, there were multiple sessions during the course of four days. It began with a general session Thursday morning. It continued through Friday with a priesthood that night. Saturday was taken off, and it concluded with two sessions on Sunday. Instead of meeting in the 21,200 seat Conference Center for all sessions, the Saints attended in the Salt Lake Tabernacle, Assembly Hall or on the temple grounds.
